Swedish-British television presenter and model Eva Ulrika Jonsson, has revealed that she doesn’t fancy walking down the aisle again.

The model who has been married 3 times claimed she’s done with having children and looking for “the one”.

Ulrika, Mom of 4, 54, is instead looking for the “best bits of a relationship.”

Speaking on Kate Thornton ‘s podcast, White Wine Question Time, the former weather girl said: “I still love the idea of marriage – but I’m not going to get married again.

“All my life I was looking for ‘the one’ and I’m not any more.”

The Shooting Stars team captain explained during her chat with the former X Factor host how she is a “new breed” of woman” who doesn’t do “conventional relationship things”.

Ulrika Jonsson isn’t bothered about becoming a married woman again

Earlier this year, Ulrika seemed a bit more opened about becoming a married woman again.

Chatting to The Sun in April, she said: “I’m a hedonist and a spontaneous person who believes in love.

“While it would feel strange getting married again, I can’t ever rule it out for the future.”

Prior to tying the knot with hubby number three, American advertising executive Brian Monet, the presenter opened up about growing up without a “solid, positive relationship” to aspire to at home.

“It goes without saying, that despite being only eight when my parents divorced, it made such an impression on me and I steadfastly refused to believe in marriage,” the Swedish star wrote for the Evening Standard.

“Years later I vividly remember my stepfather telling me to ‘marry a rich man and take him for all the money he’s got!’ “

Ulrika’s first marriage was to cameraman John Turnbull and the couple went on to welcome son Cameron into the world together in 1994.

The pair split in 1995 and the former Gladiators presenter went on to date footballer Stan Collymore, then manager of England’s football team Sven-Göran Eriksson and German hotel manager Marcus Kempen – with whom she shares daughter Bo with, born in 2000.

The pair quickly married the following year and the presenter gave birth to her third child, daughter Martha, in 2004.

“It was rushed – we’d known each other only seven months when he proposed – but I truly felt I knew myself,” the star said reflecting on her failed marriage to Lance back in 2007.

“I was keen to have a happy ending; a conclusion to my years of heartache and unhappiness and it seemed the obvious answer.”

Ulrika had hoped it would be third time lucky when she walked down the aisle with American Brian in March 2008, giving birth to son Malcom later the same year.

Sadly, in April 2019 it was announced that the couple had divorced – with Ulrika telling Best magazine they had tried to save their relationship with counselling but to no joy.
